Revision as of 09:55, 22 September 2009

Research, data, use cases, issues, and enhancements related to the HTML5 cite element.

This article is a stub. You can help the whatwg.org wiki by expanding it.


speaker

This section serves to document both uses in the wild, and long-standing recommendations/documentations thereof.
